The Hakushu Single Malt Whisky Sherry Cask 2012

 

Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:

The Hakushu Single Malt Whisky Sherry Cask 2012. 48% ABV.
Nose: Top note is classic Hakushu, fresh and clean, a walk through the forest of the Japanese Alps; dry sherry, Valencia oranges, new leather seats, fresh mint, sweet tobacco, well-steeped tea, stewed prunes and a little vanilla.
Palate: Leads with a big combo of hot and sweet spices. Peanut brittle, dry sherry, strawberry, cloves, earth, chocolate, fig jam, mushrooms. Water brings out toffee, nougat, cherry and enhances the strawberry.
Finish: Medium on forest earthyness, mushrooms, dry sherry, strawberries, toffee, fig jam, peanut butter, fresh lawn clippings, tobacco leaf, drying.

While I've never been to the Japanese Alps, your description makes both the landscape and the drink sound very enticing.
